An unrelated question but I'm going to use this thread, but Illya is a male name? Or somehow changes when it's Ilya? Why does she has a male name then? It has some special meaning or what?
>>

Ilya is a common Russian male name.

It's a Russian male name, however it's pronounced like Illja/Il'ya. They are just very similar in written form.

He suffers from major same face. Great skill technically, but his work is boring as fuck.

That and he's a smug asshole.
>>
>>133963100
>Thoughts on kuvshinov ilya?

He earns a lot (not Sakimichan LOT, but still a lot) and his art is popular. And I thought fan artists like him are supposed to be poor, hell I was wrong.

Personally I like some of his images. But I'm getting tired of his style. He uses chromatic aberration everywhere.

I've seen some SHOCKING TRUTH about him tracing figs or images of some other artists but honestly only fools would care about originality of art. Especially that kind of art with video games, movies, anime. Everyone does that, everyone is using samples in music or tracing originals in art or rehashing lyrics, etc.
>>
>>133963761
what a piss poor excuse to defend his work.

This statement is painfully irrelevant considering how every single anime artist and his dog is "suffering" from sameface syndrome.

He doesn't even try to vary the faces though, that's the problem. He has the skill to, but he refuses. His work is stale and he doesn't take risks with it.

You are obviously not artists and don't know how it works. A golden rule for any new artists is to find some professional artist you admire and copy the shit out of him. Yeah, that's it. You copy and you learn by doing that. You are not original. You are not bringing anything new. You are pretty much shit artist and you have to rely on someone else. And if you are working hard enough you'd eventually become better and step aside of copying.

Only fools care about originality. Nothing is original, everything was made before you.

Well, I'm sorry you have gotten depressed and stooped so low as to become a mere copycat, but there is a way to be completely original and Ilya and Yoko do not do those things. Have some respect for the industry, faggot.

>>133963919
>>133963921
I'm pretty sure I learned about her ages before you, kiddo.

And yeah, that drama about her "stealing samples" is non existent in reality. Literally no one gives a shit about it in studios or Japan in general.

Because everyone does that. Sawano, Kanno, Kajiura. Getting inspired by something else, rehashing your own works, use samples, etc. It's common practice for any artists.

The only reason it's a drama is because she's one of the larger composers that gets away from it more frequently. While it's a shame, there's a difference between taking something from other composers and turning it into your own thing, and blatantly ripping them off as Kanno does.

>>133964109
(You) here, as a fellow artist struggling to find the fine line between originality and plagiarism, the line isn't as hard to find if you know the difference between influence and imitation. The latter tends to happen more when people get comfortable and lazy.

Some on 4chan seem to hate anyone who is actively creative in any way. It's a weird 'crabs in a bucket' mentality people have here. So they go "same face??". or "hurdur chromatic aberration??" etc. As if they've ever created something themselves. I think it's textbook jealousy.

could your drawfag friend get it done with that level of quality? Sakimichan actually spends a lot of time polishing her skills. As much as I hate her gimmicks, her style is clearly very well honed. On top of that she doesn't just draw anime, she draws all sorts of stuff in a (western) anime style. It's not very surprising she makes a lot off commissions when you factor those two together.

Not even close, but he would do it for free.

that's true, but the market doesn't always demand 'skill', which would be easy to explain if you looked at the currently trending anime.

A while back he would post threads on /v/ with his art as OP and then samefag responses like, "source on OP pic", "it's kr0nprinz, check out his patreon". And the same would happen every fucking day.

Shiin has been doing this for years, so he build a pretty big fanbase thanks to that.
Actually, I myself discovered him a few years ago I liked his stuff for what they were, silly porn but the fetish made my hard and that was enough.
Except in the meantime I myself began drawing and because I that the flaws of all his pics began to get way too big, while it feels like the guy is also getting even worst as the time go. His coloring is horrendous and the faces are garbage. And to add shit he created this patreon like one or two years ago and he has been getting way too much money considering what he's usually doing.

Though to be fair. He sometimes does full doujin stories, and they're surprisingly hot.

I like his works, he has a great sense of proportions, colors and his coloring style is unique. There is something catchy about each piece of his that makes you want to open and see it, it's a perfect medium of moe and semi-realism.

It's just a simple face. Show what you can do with bodies and stuff.

Not really. he's a PORN artist. What is important isn't how perfect looking it is, but if you will fap to it. And in that regard, his stuffs are pretty popular. Of course, you may not like it, but a lot of people still do. Shiin has got a pretty good diversity of poses in his comics, and they don't have the awful shading in his usual illustrations, which are overall much more lazier lately.

Don't question the dick, if it wasn't porn I would find that shit as well, but it still somehow gets me hard.

He really good for what he does, which is really really, limited. One girl sameface, painting render, and the rest is copied from another artwork.

He has skills but he's beyond lazy. Compare with >>133975036 for some high tier illustrations with cute faces.
>>
>>133975238
Between the references and his art, his art is far better proportioned.
>>
>>133973692
it's called having a set style. Look at Akira Toriyama and Araki
I agree more variation would be better but having similar samefaces isn't bad when it's still distinguishable from his other pictures

>>133975272
Yes. I'll be more specific: I draw objectively nicer than he does.

Do I draw porn better than him? No, it's not something I do in the first place.

Reminds me on that one guy who spams that low tier Ah! My Goddess stuff for several years!

Just wanted to add, in technical sense, his works are fine. But that doesn't change the fact that he's completely devoid of ANY creativity and invention. Painting from references is worthless if you can't do anything else. Any retard can copy/stylize a photo or a movie screenshot. True challenge is creating something on your own.
>>
>>133975320
What's really going on about that pic is the background, not the character. The animu in your pic is the definition of a sameface. You seem to think that detailed work means the artist is more talented.

>>133975410
The references I was talking about were animu too. He adapts it to his style.

He tweeted some sketches he did of real people in subway, parks and elsewhere outdoors, and he definitely has the skill to do varied kinds of people, perspectives and postures.

Yup, for real.

front positioned body, undetailed, lots of hidden stuff, one hand is hidden with the arms looking weirdly small, and the other is badly done.

Does it need to be detailed to look good? You can't draw front-positioned pics now because it makes them automatically shit? Don't be so stupid.
>>
>>133976216
wow
>>
>>133976248
As an artist, I do that a lot, because it puts some contrast from the head and the neck. The face looks like it's part of the neck if you don't draw a line clearly.
>>
>>133976254
Sorry, but you need basic education. Clearly you have no idea what you're talking about. I'm done talking to you.
>>
>>133975730
In that case, most of it is just a real photo with some effects added on it. But I tend to prefer the "good" Japanese artists to the "good" Western artists because there's typically more simplicity. By which I mean, just because you are artistically capable of drawing the reflections on every single button of a girl's jacket as she gets fucked in the ass doesn't mean it helps the image achieve its goal.
>>
>>133976254
Okay. Remove the left arm. No check the torso position. it's totally fucked up. And yes, it should be more detailed, plenty of parts looks really flat. and the fact only the face is detailed makes it even weirder.

>>
>>133976464
if you ask me it's probably a mixture of how popular he is compared to the level of effort he puts into his compositions. I don't think he deserves the popularity when he's essentially redrawing the body and then slapping his autistic trademark face onto it.
>>
>>133976518
He completely redraws quite a few of those in his own art style. Simply putting the character in the same body position isn't that bad.

>>133976464
What he does is essentially what someone does when they're doing studies. Plenty of artists do this. I think people are mad because he doesn't treat his "studies" the same way other people normally treat studies. That is, declaring it is a study, etc. But I don't know much about his behaviour online, so this is mostly an assumption. People typically don't get as asspained over artists who do nothing but studies as much as they get asspained over this guy, so it must be because he doesn't treat them as studies.

Your pic describes your sense of anatomy pretty well.

You do master studies to learn techniques or skills employed by the original artist to create the piece. These people that copy may have nice technique but who cares when they have no creativity.

I simply hate him because despite being boring, unimaginative and a sellout, he's still a better artist than me, and he's successful.
there, I said it.

Look at this perfect anatomy, man. That fucking anatomy, man, look at that hand, fucking look at it.

>no creativity.
Why waste your time with creativity when technique is enough to feed you. Art is a business.

You can work 9 to 5 as a burger flipper and make creative art in your free time, or you could be like these guys and find a niche.

In this case it's copying shitty anime art and drawing it with a superior technique.

I salute them for playing one of the most retarded communities out there like a fiddle.

I can't believe I'm doing this for some artist I don't even know, but you're a fucking retard son. Learn what style means and then show up to teach us your "basic education".

I love when hack artist only have coloring going for themselves and they either copy, or have shit anatomy.

>Blad Runner is a kind of cult classic and loved by those with refined tastes
Get the fuck out of here
It does not deserve the praise it gets. It was an ok movie
And the replicant that gave the hints to the bladerunner was far more interesting than him
Protagonist has no character aside that forced rape scene. Unless the characterization is supposed to be stale and inhuman to show how much of a replicant the characters were

Show us good animu art Leonardo.I'm bretty sure I'm a better artist than you.

People that are skilled work in the film/game/entertainment industry making the things everyone consumes, they don't flip burgers. This guy does well, but like you said it is a niche and even then most people who go into a career in art do so because they want to do something they like, if he likes producing derivative copies of work that is his prerogative but most others prefer to do original work. Look at pic related, he's mostly known for his fan art online but he does comic book covers and stuff like that.

>People that are skilled work in the film/game/entertainment industry
Speaking as someone who works in the game industry I can say that unfortunately, no, 3/4th of the artists working in the industry can't get on the slavs little finger even when they're copying shit.

That's why most companies that need shit drawn call up chinks nowadays. Western artists are shit and all you have to blame are your retarded art schools that teach jack shit.

There are tonnes of places to develop practical illustration skills, even if fine art has gone off the deep end. Most people are turned off from it because of how intensive courses are or how much work it actually takes to become good enough to get work. You just never hear about good western artists because they are all locked up tight by their companies and little of their work gets seen in the public because of NDAs.

He has drawn plenty animu/manga characters and his style is anime-ish. That's enough.

Let me just post some things off the top of my head:

>Pillars of Eternity
>Concept Artists: Kazunori Aruga, Polina Hristova
The game is 3D apart from that.

>Shadworun : Dragonfall
>Environment Art Lead : Jenn Tran
The game is 3D apart from the environments.

>Transistor
>Art : Jen Zee

>XCOM : EW
>Concept Artists : Piero Macgowan, Aaron Yamada-Hanff, Bryce Homick

So far out of the jobs that require art skills only a single Western name.

I could go on. Really in my 5 experience so far in the industry when "pencils and paints' are involved they start looking for a slav, a chink or whatever else. Very rarely a Westerner.

Has this guy ever done full body or just trace torsos?
